Babolat Pure Storm Team
Released September, 2008
The Pros:Good groundstrokes--fast and consistent. Great control--very easy to add spin or hit flat. Good volley performance--fast and consistent.
The Cons:Grip tends to come loose and make squeaking noises after a month or so of regular use. Poor head durability--can crack on impact during regular play. A bit too lightweight for serves--limits strength somewhat.
The Babolat Pure Storm Team is a mid-cost tennis racquet with both a larger head (100 square inches as opposed to 98 square inches) and a lighter weight (10.1 ounces as opposed to 10.4 ounces) than the slightly lower cost Pure Storm model.

Babolat promotes this racquet as a middle ground between control and power. The six point head light balance point of this racquet contributes to its maneuverability. The Woofer technology of this racquet makes it so the frame and strings interact when striking the ball, which increases the contact between the ball and strings, another feature that helps with control. The GT technology of this racquet, a combination of braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments, provides 10% increased energy recovery over non-GT models, for more power.
